CORE ALC+

CORE ALC+has been specifically designed for athletes who want to increase their energy, strength and resistance and recover in a timely manner. CORE ALC+ contains Acetyl-L-Carntitine, alpha-lipoic acid, cinnamon extract and chromium.


Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) is an acetylated form of L-carnitine. This form of the substance is better absorbed by the body and, due to its higher lipophilicity, is able to pass through the blood-brain barrier as well as cell membranes to reach the muscle. In the body, and more precisely in the blood, it gets broken down into carnitine molecules by plasma esterases. The carnitine is then used to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy production. It has been proven that the absence of this substance leads to reduced energy production and an increase in adipose tissue. In the central nervous system, ALC interacts with the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, carrying out an antioxidant action. Carnitine also has cardio and vasoprotective properties. It increases peripheral vasodilatation, improving the flow and distribution of oxygen. Carnitine also helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and raises HDL values, reducing the risk of deposits in blood vessels. Carnitine has been proven to lower the level of the lipoproteins responsible for heart attacks. Because of its abilities to convert fats into energy, carnitine is also widely utilized in the sports world to improve athletic performance. In addition, during physical activity carnitine reduces the formation of lactic acid and maintains muscle glycogen.


Alpha lipoic acid (or lipoic acid, ALA) is a fatty acid found naturally in cells. The human body only produces small amounts of it, thus making supplementation necessary. Lipoic acid is primarily involved in the metabolism of glucose and fat into energy. It improves the utilization of carbohydrates and stabilizes blood sugar. Normally glucose gets converted into fat if the body does not use it. However, lipoic acid is able to convert excess carbohydrates into muscle energy rather than lipids, or fat. Our muscles can increase the conversion of glucose into ATP, resulting in less fat and a much higher energy potential. Alpha-lipoic acid also has the ability to counteract the glycation, a process that occurs when parts of glucose molecules react with the protein tissues and damage them. Its antioxidant function is also particularly effective because it is an active substance in both lipid and aqueous phases and has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants (Vitamin A, C, E, coenzyme Q and glutathione). It also a great promoter of glutathione levels and it increases its availability, which is a very important function considering the fact that glutathione is the most powerful intracellular antioxidant.

Yet another component of this product is cinnamon extract. Cinnamon is known for its beneficial properties in the gastrointestinal tract. In fact, it is able to stimulate digestion by stimulating the secretion of gastric juices and activating the digestive enzyme trypsin. Furthermore, it reduces swelling and acts as a natural disinfectant in the gastrointestinal system. Rich in vitamins and minerals, cinnamon has a restorative effect on the body, boosts the immune system and it acts as an antioxidant and a natural antibacterial against fungi, bacteria and viruses. Finally, the Cinnamon is also useful for diabetics because it is able to adjust blood sugar levels, activating insulin receptors and thus supporting the entry of glucose into the cells.

Lastly, the CORE ALC+ formula also contains chromium, which is an essential trace element for our body. It is especially known for its ability to enhance insulin function and improve the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, which results in lower blood sugar levels and weight loss. Moreover, chromium also helps improve muscle tone, plays a role in proteins synthesis by bonding with RNA and it also transports proteins in the blood along with the iron.
